Cats and dogs have been rivals for centuries, but Maggi and Pumpkin from Colorado have put their differences aside for friendship. The two siblings were caught in an unlikely embrace that has the world going crazy.

Their mother, Jordan Ireland, shared a video of her pets embracing on Twitter that immediately went viral. She captioned the video with, “Did my dog just pet my cat?? And did my cat just hug my dog??” The video shows her dog, Maggi approach her cat, Pumpkin on the couch. Maggi gently takes her paw and strokes Pumpkin’s back.

At this point, most cats would react with a hiss and a batting paw, but not Pumpkin. Instead, she instantly leaps up and wraps her legs around Maggi’s neck for a hug. The two cuddle together for a few moments enjoying the loving embrace.
